Hulk Hogan, kids’ hero, addresses sex tape scandal October 14, 2012

Wrestler Hulk Hogan has been a hero to generations of children. With his career taking off again after a rough divorce, Hogan was recently confronted with bad news: a secret sex tape featuring him and his best friend’s ex-wife has gone public. Gossip site Gawker released a shortened version of the 30 minute video. In response, Hogan’s lawyer said that he was “appalled at the unauthorized release” of the film, and that the “outrageous invasion of privacy and breach of trust” might warrant a legal response.

Meanwhile, Hogan has been forced to address the scandal while doing a series of interviews about his new role as general manager of TNA Impact Wrestling. While talking to Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, Hogan said, “I had no idea there was a camera in the room. It was at a very, very low point. I’m not making excuses. I’m accountable. I was the guy. I was there. I made the choice.” He elaborated, “I was with some friends and I made a wrong choice. And now, all of a sudden, it surfaces over six years later, and it’s just appalling. It’s totally flipped my new life…upside down.”
